Song

Redwood and Wildfire to the tune of “This Land Is Your Land”
Redwood and Wildfire, hell of a story,
About two people, who’re bound for glory.
From Peach Grove, Georgia, to old Chic-a-ago.
This tale was meant for you and me.

Andrea Hairston, playwright and scholar,
She won the Tiptree—a thousand dollars.
She gets an art piece, and a ti-ar-a
She wrote this book for you and me.

Redwood and Wildfire, hell of a story,
About two people, who’re bound for glory.
From Peach Grove, Georgia, to old Chic-a-ago.
This tale was meant for you and me.

Murder and magic, music and gender,
The story’s tragic, but also tender.
From vaudeville stage to a movie thee-a-ter,
This book was made for you and me.

Redwood and Wildfire, hell of a story,
About two people, who’re bound for glory.
From Peach Grove, Georgia, to old Chic-a-ago.
This tale was meant for you and me!
